There are two basic elements which will account for a perfect video, one is obviously the footage and second is the audio behind the video. If one of 2 elements is absent or not properly selected, the whole video will not be an attractive one. If you’ve already has great Christmas footage, to make it an outstanding video, you’re supposed to attach Christmas music to it. However, you can’t do it manually. You have to do it with the help of a video editing tool. Here I’d like to recommend you Filmora Video Editor.

I recommend Filmora Video Editor (or Filmora Video Editor for Mac) to you, not only because it will let you attach Christmas songs to a video, but also it has multiple Christmas elements you can make use of: Christmas motion elements (Christmas trees/bells/Santa Clause/snowman/presents/beautiful socks), titles, overlays, green screen, split screen, etc. And most important, it’s easy to learn and easy to use even though you don’t have any experience in editing videos. And you can also make use of the following features:
